That’s what September is all about –
usually. But not if you are a 12 x 12 in 2012 member! I got together with some amazingly generous participating authors to plan an end-of-summer party! This month, it’s all prizes and no study. Instead of a featured author and one prize, we have lots of authors giving stuff away. GREAT stuff!
So, dig your toes in the sand one more time, stick that umbrella back in your drink and soak up the last of the sun. This month, it’s all about fun!
(And if you are on the other side of the world, this is your ‘Congratulations-you-made-it-through-winter-and-spring-is-on-the-way’ party)!
Participants, in order to win a prize you must be an official challenger and leave a comment on this post (INCLUDING YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME) any time during the month of September for one point. On September 30th, l’ll put a check-in post on the blog. If you complete a picture book draft in September, you can let us know in the comments of that post for another point. I will draw a winner using Random.org and announce on October 2nd.
Do not let the opportunity to win these fabulous prizes pass you by. Remember to comment on both posts!
